What is a food asset?

For the purposes of this project, a food asset is a resource, facility, program, place, knowledge hub or service that supports a food system (from field to fork to compost) and may provide people the opportunity to learn about, grow, access, cook, eat, share or dispose of healthy and culturally important food. Food assets should be integrated to build community and enhance the environmental, economic, social and nutritional wellbeing of the UBC Vancouver campus.
